OK so I thought that I had enough skill to turn something in 2 hours. Well…. almost, I guess. It looked a whole lot better in person but the pictures don’t lie, I definately could have taken a little more timewith this one. But all in all I think I was successful in general. Enjoy.

Cedar is beautiful. You’ll find something to do with it. The big question is did you learn ways to do it better in the future?

Yes I did in fact,

1. Use better lighting
2. Don’t rush

Love the color ! I am envious. Our Western Red Cedar is boring in comparison.

Very dramatic looking bowl. I think it came out fine.

I like it a lot. I work with Eastern red cedar and lot and about every time I take a picture it shows up places that my eye can’t see. You did a fine job.

Great looking bowl. I’ve got a short chunk of red cedar log. I may play with it this afternoon.
